Rectangular plates on the passenger's side of the engine. They have 3 bolts in each one, and cover the lifters on the ol six bangers. If they don't leak, leave em alone.

Well, since I did some exploring today, they do leak.

They aren't difficult to remove, but be VERY CAREFUL that you don't bend them or get any gasket crud down in the engine. Stuff rags in the opening to keep the crud out when you scrape it off. Use a good gasket sealer like Permatex to hold the gaskets to the covers when you install them.

They were only 3 bucks at the parts store. The Gaskets came off in one piece because of their age. The new ones are rubber rather than cork.
